Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) is an established technique used to treat osteochondral lesions in the knee. For larger osteochondral lesions (> 5 cm(2)) deeper than approximately 8 mm we have combined the use of two MACI membranes with impaction grafting of the subchondral bone. We report our results of 14 patients who underwent the 'bilayer collagen membrane' technique (BCMT) with a mean follow-up of 5.2 years (2 to 8). There were 12 men and two women with a mean age… CONTINUE READING
